5 Ways to Make Your Long-Distance Relationship Work
When your significant other needs to move, especially on the other side of the world, you might be tipsy on your relationship. But if both of you want to keep going and want to make things work, there are a lot of ways on how you can still keep the relationship going strong even if you’re miles away.
Keep in Touch
Communication is important in long-distance relationships. Be sure to keep in touch often and return calls or text messages within a reasonable timeframe. If it’s too costly to keep calling or texting overseas, try sites like Facebook, Twitter or Skype and be creative in how you stay in touch. Send pictures, video call or even the smallest messages telling about your day is a big thing in your relationship.
You can’t physically be together so you often have to stick with communicating through phones, video calls or text messaging. While a lot of people see this as a limitation, try and see it as an opportunity to be creative. For example, why not initiate a video chat and serenade her with a song while strumming on a guitar? Sending her sweet text messages on special days is also a huge plus. On social media sites, why not make an album with all your pictures together? Exercising your creativity in keeping the relationship going is sweet and inspirational that will make the other person try even harder.
Trust is a major issue in long-distance relationships. It’s most often the number one reason why most long-distance relationships break off because one side has a lack of trust. Establish limits and don’t be too obsessive. Maintain a good borderline between being sweetly jealous and from being overly envious. A little jealousy is cute and healthy in a relationship but envy ruins everything.

Since you can’t really go out together to see a movie or go eat at a restaurant, phone dates are a great idea. Try and watch the same movie together and talk about it. Talk about each other’s day. Talk about how you read this interesting book. Though it might be tiring to tell about details of your life, it makes an impact in long-distance relationships.
Do Something Unique on Special Days
You’re miles away and you can’t spend birthdays, Christmas or Valentine’s Day together. Why not spice it up by doing something unique on those special days? Send a package or a letter in advance so it reaches them on time during Valentine’s Day. Sending over an unexpected gift in Christmas or her birthday is a great way to surprise them and keep that spark alive.
A long-distance relationship is certainly one tough challenge that only a few couples can maintain. Though you can’t be with him or her physically, your emotions and feels are still able to reach them. If both sides don’t stop trying, distance is just a number and the relationship will ultimately work out and make it even stronger. Load more…
